*Intro music plays* Hey guys! Greetings from Taiwan. The evening is young. It’s not even 6 pm yet. Today we’re exploring Ximending shopping area. I’m going to be meeting one of my college buddies. Fried squid balls, fried “tampura.” Steamed rolls. Dozens and dozens of potstickers. Oh, this looks curious… Oh, look at that red bean oozing out! Some sort of pancake. These ones have black sesame seeds in the middle. What is this cubic thing? Looks like a block of peanuts. *shaving noise* Whoa, he just shaves it right off from the top! Two scoops of ice cream. He put some cilantro, it looks like? And, of course, the universal street food: sausages. You guys, we’re here. We made it to the Modern Toilet. And… Brian: Guys, we’re here. Mina: Who’s this? Who’s this? Brian: Hi, how’s it going. What’s up, what’s your name? Brian: My name is Brian, what’s up? Brian, so awesome to see you thousands of miles away from L.A. Brian: We’re gonna eat some poop today. *Mina laughs* Brian recently got married in Taiwan, which is what brought me to this country filled with friendly locals and quirky restaurants. You’ll meet his wife Chi Chi in a future vlog coming soon! We all went to art college together. We have a half-toilet sticking out from the corner. Take a close look at the stick figures on the sides. The one on the top is like, “Aw I gotta go!” And then, the second one is going. And then, the one on the bottom. That’s the figure is looking at the mirror. Checking itself out. You gotta show people your hair. Brian: My hair is like really bad today, it’s not… it’s usually more swoopy. Your hair is like 4-D. Brian: 4-D? Yeah. Modern Toilet, here we come. Okay, very appropriate. Brian: What are those worms coming out of? I don’t understand. Mmmm, tapeworms! Happy poop! 😀 Alright! Do these open? Brian: Can you open it? I’m not sure. I think they… oh it does open! Oh and they have poop tiles! And on each table we have a sink with a poop in it. Were these toilets actually used for pooping before? Check out these rainbow pipes. They have a third floor as well, but that opens up if this entire floor gets filled up. Okay let’s take a look at the menu. Wow! Oops! *giggle* That’s not a sound that I want to make in the restroom. Bang! What?! Are your toilet experiences that animated? Kaboom! Crappy Meat Sauce Fries. Now crappy? *chuckle* Modern Toilet Bread. Brian also has a vlogging channel and on the wall is a urinal. Oh! Looks like they opened up the third floor! Brian’s gonna go first. *adventure music plays* Alright we’re gonna check out the upstairs. *background noise* There are flies on the wall. So it looks the same as downstairs. If you wonder where the restroom is… It is happily called VIP Lounge. And the sink, is *chuckle* toilet. And the toilet looks like a toilet. Ice in the urinal, mmmmm. I just washed my hands at this sink, but my hands don’t feel very clean. I know it’s all completely psychological, it’s all mental. Ohhhh, we just got our curry, chicken curry. And it comes in a mini toilet. *giggle* Does it smell right? Does it smell like curry? Is it steamy? Brian: A little bit. Steamy and fresh? Ew what is that? Ohh… Is that tofu? Brian: Yeah it is. Brian: Oh, nice. Mmm, more steamy and fresh. *Giggle* And look it, the drink comes in a urinal. Is it psychologically disturbing you? *chuckle* Alright Brian, let’s bond over toilet food! Brian: Let’s do this. There are not many times in your life where you sit on a toilet and eat out of a toilet bowl. Brian: What is this? Umm…Bathroom stains. It looks like blood, I mean that’s legit. It’s all part of the theme. You wanna take the first bite? Should I take the first bite? Let’s do it. Oh it’s not that deep at all, what is this?! Cheers! Brian: I mean honestly it’s just chicken. It’s just chicken. It’s just chicken. Brian: Here we go! Mina: Let’s do it. *giggle* Brian: What do you feel about that? Once I remove it, from here, and I focus on the chicken, it’s okay, but, yeah but if I look at this urinal as I chew on it then I feel kind of weird. This actually lifts up. And I question how often they clean this cause you see stains like… That’s pretty thematic. This is 290 Taiwanese dollars. Normally when a potato is soft, it makes me feel all happy inside, but in this case because it’s soft and it’s like a toilet theme… uhh, makes me feel a little uncomfortable. You know what would elevate our experience? If we open the toilet seat cover and seat on it open, and THEN eat. Challenge accepted. I think that might be a hazard. Brian: It kind of make you wanna go. It kind of makes you wanna go! It’s very inspirational. Oh thankfully you have a wall! Brian: Oh there’s something in there? What?! Being in this restaurant really makes you wanna eat fiber and make fiber. *giggle* Brian: Makes me wanna throw up. Why hello there! It’s a meatball, yes? Brian: You don’t think it’s actually meat? Brian: Which one’s the grossest? Which one’s the grossest, well this one is pretty bloody looking. Brian: *oh’s in disgust* *Mina laughs* Brian: This one’s okay cause it doesn’t look too realistic. Maybe this is like, diarrhea and then this is a scared poop. He’s gonna do a little demo for us! How bout we cut them in halves, yeah? And it’ll be friendship poop! It’s getting hot in here. Brian: It is. Brian: Are you getting this? Mmmmm!! Brian: Are you getting the close up? AWWW!!! OHHH!!! *chuckle* Brian, I think you have a talent for this! Brian: See all the juice coming out? Brian: What are you gonna get? I’ll try the curry first with you. Brian: Alright. *questioning music plays* That texture is very questionable! *nervous giggle* Brian: It’s gross! *Mina giggles* If we were not eating at a toilet themed restaurant I think, we’d probably be okay. It’s all in the mind. Brian: It is. Cheesy crap? Brian: Alright let’s do it. Don’t forget to dip it *giggle* into the extra sauce. Cheers! Brian: Cheers! That’s some decent poop right there! Bloody poops. Actually the cheese was not that bad! It was strong! Cheers! That bloody one is probably the most memorable. What’s your favorite kind of crap? Brian: My own. *chuckle* I think the cheesy crap is the best one. Mashed potato crap. Hm, it’s just mashed potatoes! Have you ever eaten and pooped at the same time? Brian: No. *chuckle* Brian: I haven’t, have you? I’ve eaten a tomato while I was showering. Brian: While you were showering? Mina: Yeah. Brian: What caused that? I never did it before so I wanted to change that! Brian: Was that yesterday? No *chuckle* That was four years ago. (Brian: Lemme split it apart with this.) Yeah work that urinal boy! What does it taste like? Brian: It tastes like green tea. It’s like if you closed your eyes you could never know you were drinking out of a urinal. Brian: It’s not bad. Brian: It’s not bad right? Brian: No, you don’t like it? It’s a little bitter. Brian: I think they asked me do you wanna add sugar, I said no. Brian, we barely started eating, you can’t be done yet! Brian: It’s just too much for me. You can do it, I believe in you! Brian: Psychologically it’s too much. Brian: I really don’t wanna eat any of this. If we bring this outside, you’re gonna enjoy it. Ten times more. I will blindfold you and then, three days later I will feed you the same food, and after you’ll be like “Oh this is good! (Brian: You sure?) I wanna put it in a hamburger!” Brian: I think that I will tell that this is from the toilet restaurant. *giggle* You said you’re leaving back to the States tomorrow, right? Brian: Sunday. Oh, Sunday. What’s today? Brian: Today’s Thursday? Okay so this food, it’ll be left behind in Taiwan. You’re not gonna export it *chuckle* to America? What’s up we just got our, poopy ice cream. Look at it glisten. That’s what a real fresh poop looks like! Brian: It’s sweating. It’s sweating! What a beautiful family portrait! This is the papa poop and these are the twins. Let’s try this tofu. That’s pretty firm. I think if your poop is that firm, it’s a successful one. They’re eating the poop bread. *dramatic music plays* Uh yeah we should eat the ice cream before it gets more runny. Brian: It’s okay. It’s kind of watery. Brian: 7 out of 10. *chuckle* 7 out of 10. Rate my poo .com. *playful music plays* Mm! It’s chocolate ice cream, and it’s not too sweet! It’s guilt-free ice cream. *sexy music plays* *Mina giggling* Your teeth look pretty. Too awesome. We just discovered some rainbow stairs. We have no idea what it leads to, but let’s find out. Oh looks like a make-up shop. It’s your favorite store! It says Psycho Nerds. What is it about? Red carpet yo. *adventure music plays* It’s a clothing shop. Oh take a look at these little fish cakes! They’re stars with a smile on it! 🙂 Oh and Kimchi. *hip music plays* In the next travel vlog, Brian and I head over to the night market and Taipei 101 for the city views.
